  1. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  4. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  5. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  6. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...

  8. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Systan, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transportation planning currently relies on extensive and expensive household surveys, which are so costly that they are rarely conducted more than once every ten years and are often out-of-data within a year or two. Research is proposed that would test the feasibility of supplementing or supplanting these surveys with commercial data bases. To accomplish this, existing data sources will be revi ...

  9. REMOTE AERIAL INSPECTION OF BRIDGES

    SBC: Aca Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OF THE OVER 600,000 HIGHWAY BRIDGES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 RAILROAD BRIDGES IN THE U.S., MANY ARE DIFFICULT TO INSPECT BECAUSE OF LIMITED ACCESSIBILITY. REMOTE INSPECTIONBY UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES MAY PROVIDE A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, BUT INVOLVES CONSIDERATIONS OF VEHICLE SUITABILITY (HELICOPTER, BLIMP DUCTED FAN VEHICLE), THE BRIDGE LOCAL ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT, AND THE TYPE OF CONTROL (R ...

  10. COCAINE/HEROIN DRUG DETECTION USING SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE (SAW) SENSORS

    SBC: Amerasia Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR A PORTABLE DETECTOR SYSTEM THAT CAN DETECT ILLEGAL DRUGS, PRIMARILY MARIJUANA, COCAINE, AND HEROIN, ENTERING THE UNITED STATES ABOARD MARITIME VESSELS. A PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION HAS SHOWN THAT SAW TECHNOLOGY CAN DETECT 10 FEMTOGRAMS (1 X 10-14) WITH A SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO OF 3:1. IN ADDITION, THESE SENSORS HAVE A DYNAMIC RANGE OF OVER 1,000,000. BY COMBINING SAW TECHNOLOGY W ...
